This week, ZP would like to say thank you to the UK's National Physical Laboratory (NPL) for their recent work as part of the Measurement for Recovery (M4R) programme, which gives UK business access to world-leading measurement.
As part of a bigger programme to understand the performance of ZP's biosensors, the NPL team characterized a number of ZP's biosensors and screen printed electrodes, including our carbon 303 screen printed electrodes.
We were delighted with the work, because everyone benefits from having another independent team taking a look at a problem. The NPL work directly identified ways of improving the reproducibility of our ZP sensors.
The NPL team are great as they have state of the art equipment, facilities and techniques. Their independence means that they don't carry 'internal team think' and so bring a fresh perspective on a problem.
NPL have capabilities that go beyond microscopy and profilometry, including specialist techniques of interest to the electrochemistry community including: scanning electrochemical microscopy (SECM) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS).
The SPE that was characterized by microscopy and profilometry was the ZP 303 carbon electrode.
In the adjacent images we have some images gathered for ZP by NPL.
